Lucky Peach #12 is all about food from littoral realms‰ÛÓthe spaces where land meets sea. We dive for abalone and gather seaweed off the California coast; we harvest honey in the Bangladeshi Sundarabans; we go behind the scenes at aåÊshrimp farm in Indonesia, and spend a Sunday at the cockle sheds in Leigh-on-Sea. We learn lots about edible sea beasts, from clams to hagfish to sea squirts. Anthony Bourdain takes us on a stroll down a beach town‰۪s memory lane; Robert Sietsema samples practically all the clams on Long Island; Stuart Dybek catches himself a perfect breakfast in the Florida keys. We share recipes from Vietnam and Portugal and the Oregon coast‰ÛÓwe aren‰۪t shellfish. Also in this issue: a special, detachable sixteen-page Beach ReadsåÊcomic book to take on your seaside jaunts, featuring comics by Jason JÌ_gel, Tony Millionaire, and more, because it‰۪s summertime, and the reading is easy.

We are excited that Adam is coming to launch his new book, Adam Liaw's Asian Cookery Class in store!
ADAM LIAW'S ASIAN COOKERY SCHOOL is your guide to simple and traditional Asian home cooking.
More than just a recipe book, it will teach you about the ingredients and techniques of the Asian kitchen for a complete understanding of how you can create authentic Asian flavours. Each chapter in this beautifully designed and exquisitely photographed cookbook is a lesson that will improve your cooking, with practical recipes designed to try out your new skills.
Adam explains the heart and soul of Asian cuisines through hundreds of tips and insights and the kind of small wisdoms passed down from generation to generation that you would never find in a recipe alone. With his help, it won't take long for homemade Dumplings, Pad Thai, Crispy Skin Chicken, Lemongrass Beef and Green Tea Ice Cream to become your new everyday family favourites.
If you love Asian food, this is the cookbook you need in your home kitchen.
Chef Danielle Dixon has chosen nine scrumptious dishes to cook up for the event.
